    May 6, 2021 - One hour decant. Deep dark magenta color. Black cherry, pomegranate, and vanilla cream cheese on the rich nose. Dry, velvety palate, with great acidity. Full tannins on the longish finish. This is drinking in prime time now.

    March 15, 2021 - Two hour decant. Very deep ruby magenta color. Wild strawberry, blackberry, ginger, peony, orange rind, and subtle baking spice on the aromatic, fruit forward nose. Smooth, dry palate, with zesty acidity. Full tannins on the longish finish.

    This is a terrific drinker. It’s surprisingly complex for the price point.

Firm, full, medium intensity tannins on the longish finish. Very easy drinker. 52% CS, 30% Merlot, 11% Malbec, and 7% CF

    October 24, 2020 - Loved it. Outstanding wine. Fabulous aromas and ripe and flavorful on the palate. Good dry tannic finish. Couldn’t put the glass down.

    September 11, 2020 - Consistent with prior notes. Needs to be open a few hours to really open up right now though.
